Does anyone else get lower back arthritis? About once a year, out of nowhere, I get a horrible attack of it in my lower back. Usually, it's in the summer months, but we just had some odd rain this week and bang. It's like a truck ran over my lower back. I just took some Aleeve with lunch, so hopefully that will kick in soon. I didn't want to take a narc when I had to drive today. This attack is seriously making me consider selling my car. I don't know how much longer I can do this. And if I need to take narcs I won't be able to drive. I'm guessing the arthritis is Lyme, but I really don't know. All I know is, I've gotten these attacks half my life in my lower back and hips. And it's bad.
